Sarah Palin Facts

August 31, 2008

Even though we could see the website coming a mile away, it’s still an entertaining read.  Chuck Norris was the first person to have this shtick, Tim Tebow and Cole Hamels also gave it a shot, but Sarah Palin is the first person who can actually back it up. Come to think of it, I [...]

Big Brother 10: The Dan and Renny Show

August 31, 2008

I swore I’d never watch the show again after that bi%$# Allison Grodner rigged Season 8 for Evil Dick Donato, but I’ve been watching Big Brother this season. This year is probably as rigged as every other one Grodner one, but I’m still enjoying it. Early on in the season, I decided to root for [...]

In Love with Gustav

August 31, 2008

Reason #314 why I will not be voting for a Democrat any time soon:  former DNC Chairman, Don Fowler was giddy with the notion that the deadly Category 4 Hurricane Gustav (as of this writing anyway– it could go up to Cat 5 by landfall) is timed so well with the Republican National Convention that it just [...]

Where Everybody Knows His Name

Looks like Obama and Biden had quite a happy hour in Pennsylvania.

Sarah Palin’s First Numbers

August 30, 2008

Renowned pollster Scott Rasmussen has polled the immediate reaction of voters to Alaska Governor and GOP Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. 67% had NO idea who she was before Friday. Yet, amongst all voters 53% have a positive rating of her (including 29% VERY favorable), while 26% do not like her at all.  In contrast, [...]

As Visions of VP Debates Dance in Their Heads

August 30, 2008

This bit of political fortune telling is pretty funny because it is not that far-fetched.

Democrats Stumble Out of the Gate on Sarah Palin

August 29, 2008

Now this Operation Chaos. Totally blindslided by McCain’s spectacular running mate, the Democrats’ initial responses to the selection are as hilarious as they are pathetic. Obama’s campaign has already fallen into McCain’s trap by criticizing inexperience at the bottom of McCain’s ticket and Ken Salazar is apoplectic because she isn’t famous enough. The left’s initial [...]

McCain’s VP Pick To Be Announced Today (UPDATE: McCain Selects Sarah Palin)

August 29, 2008

The official announcement of John McCain’s running mate is expected in about three hours and current rumors are circulating around Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. I hope this is true as she is one of three people who would excite and unite the Republican Party. I have a couple of quick thoughts on the potential selection. [...]

Obama Preaches to His Choir

August 29, 2008

Last night, Barack Obama accepted his nomination for President and gave “The American Promise” speech.  No ceiling could tame this monster, but perhaps 85,000 mind-numbed rubes at the oddly phallic Invesco Field Obamapolis would suffice! The speech was well delivered, but I’ve seen him better.  Its content was remarkably average for a “hope and change” candidate.  He [...]

The Obamapolis

August 28, 2008

Obama and his people are so obnoxious!  Even though the Temple of Obama was planned months ago, before it was evident that the Euro trip was going to backfire, it was designed by Britney Spears’ stage manager, and plays into the whole “The One”-messianic tone of Obama’s obtuse political delusions of himself.  They had time [...]

Day 3–The Truly Historic Moment in Denver

August 27, 2008

There was a major historical moment tonight at the Democrat National Convention… You guessed it!  At 6:49pm EDT the Democrat Party nominated a Presidential candidate with less experience than anyone in living memory! (see below)  He’s never really done anything of note, had to make a serious executive decision with true consequences, has no major legislation with his [...]

Democrat National Convention: She Who Must Not Be Named Tells The Country What She Thinks Of Barack Obama

August 26, 2008

For the second day in a row, the Democrat Party missed a golden opportunity in their quest to trick the American people into electing Barack Obama to the Presidency. Tonight’s main event featured an address from the woman Obama defeated in the primaries, She Who Must Not Be Named and she did Obama no favors. [...]

The DNC — Day One

August 26, 2008

So it begins! Michelle Obama gave last evening’s major speech where she tried to rehabilitate her image amongst the folks.  Some think she did OK.  Though obviously managed and edited by fierce poll-reading sycophants it didn’t really hurt in my opinion – kids, shoutouts, kinder/gentler, blah blah.  I saw a re-airing of the speech and while I watched I couldn’t get past those [...]

Ryan’s VP Endorsement: A Seconding of John Kasich

August 25, 2008

Let me explain.  Sarah Palin’s been the flavor of the week because she’s conservative, female, and a new face on the scene.  But what has she really accomplished of significance with national or regional implications that makes her qualified to be one heart-beat away from being President?  What aid does Alaska’s Governor give the national ticket [...]

Mike’s VP Endorsement: John Kasich

August 24, 2008

You can file this one under “wishful thinking,” but I’d like to offer my two cents on who John McCain should select as his running mate. I am convinced that John Kasich would be McCain’s best option for both political and government purposes. Politically, Kasich is the best option because he would be a tremendous [...]

Margaret Thatcher’s Battle

August 24, 2008

This piece in the Daily Mail is quite a sad read, but definitely worth a look. Written by Carol Thatcher, Margaret Thatcher’s daughter, it offers a glimpse into the Iron Lady’s ongoing battle with dementia while also providing a personal look into her life by someone who obviously loves her dearly. Hat tip:  Conservative Home.

Didn’t Like the Call? Just Kick the Judge!

August 24, 2008

The latest controversy to arise out of Beijing deals with when Cuban Angel Matos disagreed with a judge’s enforcement of the rules during a tae-kwon-do medal round against Kazakhstan and decided to kick the judge in the face, spit on the mat and leave the arena.  Here’s why Matos was mad:  He was up 3-2, but needed [...]

Biden on Obama: In His Own Words

August 23, 2008

The McCain campaign has an honest to goodness War Room up and running, of which I am very impressed.  Here’s an ad released by the McCain campaign as it was becoming evident that Joe Biden would be Obama’s running mate.  It’s Joe Biden on Barack Obama: Those pesky debates are certainly going to haunt Obama [...]

Obama Selects Joe Biden As His Running Mate

August 23, 2008

With bad news going out to Governor Kaine and Senator Bayh, no 3 a.m. phone call for She Who Must Not Be Named, a private jet from Chicago landing in Delaware, and a new Secret Service detail for the dumbest U.S. Senator, indications are that Barack Obama has selected Senator Joe Biden as his running [...]

She Who WILL NOT Be Named

August 22, 2008

Drudge was calling it “The Big Diss” others are calling it a major “stiff” but the realization that not only will She Who Must Not Be Named NOT be on the Democrat ticket, but apparently the Obama people did not even entertain the idea by even vetting her must be very frustrating!  We’re still waiting for The One’s [...]

McCain vs. Obama: How Many Houses Do You Have?

August 21, 2008

Did you know that McCain is out of touch with regular Americans?  It’s true, I heard The One say it today. According to the Obama campaign, McCain is so out of touch that he doesn’t even know how many homes he has, while at the same time thinks “rich” starts at around $5 million (see video [...]

An American Carol

August 20, 2008

On October 3, David Zucker is going to release the film An American Carol  picking fun at filmmaker “Michael Malone” (read Michael Moore) who wants to ban July 4th.  The film’s story is in the model of “A Christmas Carol.”  Bill O’Reilly makes a cameo, as does a number of others from the trailer.  Ultimately, I’m surprised they [...]

McCain Up 5 in Latest Zogby Poll

August 20, 2008

Up 46%-41% over The One, John McCain finally has the lead in a national poll!  What’s special about this poll is not simply that McCain is up, but unlike many of the polls which have this race tied, the new Reuters-Zogby poll is of 1,089 “likely voters”, rather than the weaker “registered voters” or the [...]

Obama Whines at VFW Convention

August 19, 2008

In sum: “John McCain called me names, waaah!”  It’s time to call a “WAH-ambulance” for Barack Obama.  Not only did he whine about McCain’s criticism of him in front of the VFW Convention today, he got his analysis of Iraq totally wrong, and he brought this out: “But one of the things that we have to [...]

McCain Slams Daily Kos

August 18, 2008

Not wanting to be outdone by the NBC “News” parroting the Obama campaign’s false claim that McCain cheated at the Saddleback forum, Daily Kos stepped up to the plate and accused McCain of plagiarizing Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn when he told the story of his Vietnamese prison guard who drew a cross in the sand. Ryan posted [...]

McCain Slams NBC’s Bias

August 18, 2008

I was wondering when McCain’s campaign was going to take the obvious pro-Obama MSM bias out of the realm of humor and into the realm of substance.  Well, his campaign finally took the worst of the bunch, NBC, to task, sending a letter to the President of NBC, Steve Capus! I was flipping through the morning [...]

McCain v. Obama at the Saddleback Church Civic Forum

August 17, 2008

Last evening, the evangelical mega-church, Saddleback Church, had a “civic forum” with the candidates to discuss issues Pastor Rick Warren wished to hear about.  It was not a debate in the usual sense.  The format was excellent: about 50 minutes a piece, one candidate at a time using the same questions with the same audience for [...]

Movie Review: Star Wars — The Clone Wars

August 16, 2008

George Lucas obviously wants to make more money and milk the Star Wars universe a little bit more with the release of the new Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie.  I make that statement for two reasons: it’s a good movie with a “Star Wars” attached to it, thus the money will flow; and the film’s concept [...]

John Kerry… For Vice President?

August 15, 2008

The Veepstakes game is not a precise science, but some today are seriously thinking that John F’in Kerry, Lurch himself, could be on Obama’s short list for his “foreign policy credentials:”  like Kerry’s famous ”global test” debacle of 2004, or his Vietnam War service, complete with lying about our troop’s behavior to Congress once he got home?    I’m sure the Obama [...]

Roll Call Vote at the Democrat National Convention

August 14, 2008

The 2008 Democrat National Convention will feature something that hasn’t been seen at a major party convention since 1992, a roll call vote. Still fuming over the cancellation of their candidate’s coronation, supporters of Obama’s primary opponent, She Who Must Not Be Named, will now have the opportunity to put their PUMA credentials on full [...]
